Woman charged in post-game shooting free on bond

BIRMINGHAM —

A woman charged with shooting and killing a fellow Alabama football fan moments after the Iron Bowl is now free.

Shelby County jail records show 28-year-old Adrian Laroze Briskey of Birmingham is out on $75,000 bond.

Briskey is charged with murder in the killing of 36-year-old Michelle Shepherd, who was shot after Alabama lost to Auburn on a dramatic, last-second play.

Shepherd's sister says Briskey was mad that Shepherd was joking after the loss and didn't seem to be enough of a Crimson Tide fan.

Hoover police say both women pulled for Alabama, and they're trying to determine if the shooting was linked to the game.

Court records aren't yet available to show whether Briskey has an attorney, and she didn't return a message seeking comment.
